Songbird Lyrics Game

Name The Song That The Lyrics Belong To And/Or An Artist Who Sang It-Of the ones already answered, tell Us Which Ones You Knew.
a) Ones that are solved will turn to black.-b)Ones that are partly solved will turn to gray-

1)Between the silence of the mountains-And the crashing of the sea-There lies a land I once lived in-And she's waiting there for me.

2) The less I say the more my work gets done.

3) Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco, Gotta do the things I wanna do.

4)It's your life-And you can do what you want-Do what you like-But please don't keep-a me waiting.

5) You've got me captured-I'm under your spell-I guess I'll never learn

6)Like my father before me, I will work the land, Like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand.

7) I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' walkin’ down the road

8) Got my bags, got my reservations, Spent each dime I could afford.

9)I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do-

10)Standing in line marking time--Waiting for the welfare dime-'Cause they can't buy a job

11)When Mountains Crumble to the sea-there will still be you-and me

12) But it's all right now-I learned my lesson well

13) So high I can't get over it-So low I can't get under it

14) And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing, And it echoed through the canyon -Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

15) You told me to leave you alone- My father said come on home
